Gender: Male

About Me:
I married right after my return from Vietnam, and am still married to the same wonderful womn. I have six children, all them grown up now. I have five grandchildren. Hunting,fishing, shooting and collecting guns are my hobbies.


I retired as Fire Chief of the Governors Island Fire Dept. in 1996. I have since moved from Long Island, NY to Florida. I continue to work doing something different, driving an 18 wheeler over the road. It is something I always wanted to do. Who knows, next year I may go to chef schoo.

I'll Go (A Soldiers Oath) I would like to share with you, a music video dedicated to all soldiers called I'll Go (A Soldiers Oath) by Kelly's Lot. It is a tribute to the military, and to all veterans, and is well worth watching. Please feel free to share it anywhere you'd like. Here's the link (this is not a download, simply a link to a YouTube video): I'll Go (A Soldiers Oath) - Kelly's Lot - @ Cahuenga General Store Or copy & paste the link below into your address bar: http://youtu.be/c5p1Qiqggao Thank you for your time.
